Bash and the Chicken Coop Caper

-About the book:Mysterious footprints in the snow. Vanishing mittens, misplaced eggs. A pink, purple, and orange paisley sleeping bag on the move. Something’s definitely amiss in the chicken coop, and wackiness runs amok on Bash Hinglebobb’s blizzard-blasted farm. While Bash is inventing such contraptions as a snowball catapult from inner tubes and underwear, his cousin Beamer Boxby, a city kid at heart, must help newcomer Lauren Rodriguez figure out why God lets horrible things happen to good people. Can Bash’s Farmin’ and Fishin’ Book (the Bible) be believed when it says, “We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God”? What about when fire rolls through an animal building. Or when a kid’s lost her dad? It’s time to find out—with a little help from an ice-skating pig.

-About the Author and Illustrator

Burton Cole is a Pulitzer Prize nominated journalist with thirty years of experience and more than fifty humor writing awards to his credit. He grew up on a farm in northeast Ohio and attended a smalltown church with a slew of cousins and buddies. That same boyhood inspires his colorful stories today.

Tom Bancroft has more than twenty years of experience in the animation and illustration industry and worked with Disney on films including Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Aladdin. Other clients have included DC Comics and Big Idea Productions. He lives with his family in Nashville, Tennessee.

My 9 yr old really loved reading this story. This is what she had to say:
I loved that it was really easy to read and I kept wanting to know what was going to happen next. I really didn't want to put it down even when I knew I had to. I loved that it was a mystery and i just kept trying to guess what they were going to do next. It was so funny! And the pictures were great - they really helped me know what was going on in the story.
As Mom I love that it is based on Christian principles and helps to reinforce the principles in the Bible.
This book gets 5 stars: Mom and kid approved!
You can purchase it on Amazon.

Thank you for your thoughts on my book. I'm thrilled that your daughter loved it. Now I'm eager to find out what she thinks about the prank-filled third installment in the series, "Bash and the Chocolate Milk Cows," but that doesn't release until May 2015. Waiting can be so hard... -- Burt
